Federal Judge holds that Pasaban defendants must submit to US Jurisdiction in Theft suit filed by EII.
TACOMA, Wash., Aug. 13, 2012 /CNW/ - Enterprises International Inc. has alleged in a suit in US Federal Court that its partner in Lamb-Pasaban, Pasaban SA and its owners, Sergio Pasaban, Christina Pasaban, and Alfredo Pasaban engaged in Theft of business opportunities and breach of fiduciary duty to the joint company by selling products directly in China and other countries which are the exclusive territory of Lamb-Pasaban.
In 1990 Pasaban agreed that certain countries would be the Exclusive Territory of the jointly owned company, Lamb-Pasaban. EII alleges that Pasaban sold directly to customers in the Territory exclusively designated for Lamb-Pasaban. EII has sued for an injunction to prevent further sales of any kind by Pasaban in the Lamb-Pasaban territory and damages for sales made in contravention of Pasaban's agreements.
US Federal Judge Ronald Leighton denied Pasaban's motion to dismiss the suit and affirmed EII's right to bring suit against Pasaban and the individual Pasaban defendants in the US for theft of business opportunities and breach of fiduciary duty. A Judgment issued by the Federal District Court is enforceable worldwide.
